To our valued patients,

We are undergoing construction and a change of store location. This change is expected to take 2 to 3 weeks starting on June 8th. We are accommodating emergency eyeglass repairs during this transition and will address all other appointments after we are open at our new location.

Please call 603-474-3781 if you have any questions or concerns, we apologize for this inconvenience and look forward to treating you soon!

Thinner and Lighter Lenses

Do you desire thinner, lighter lenses? People with a lower refractive error generally don’t think about the thickness of their lenses because they have many material options that are thin and light. People who have a stronger prescription, however, will notice a big difference in the weight and the appearance of their lenses with new materials. Watch the video to learn more!

Get Thinner and Lighter Lenses

People with a strong prescription usually want the thinnest and lightest lenses possible. Most eyewear choices are made of plastic or metal with rims thinner than the lens. In other cases, the frame has no rim at all and features rimless mountings. In either case, the edges of your lens are highly visible. Thicker edges can detract from the appearance of your eyewear.

The good news is that a variety of new plastic materials are available to provide thinner and lighter lenses. This means less lens material can be used to correct the same amount of prescription. High index lenses are the thinnest, flattest, and most cosmetically appealing lens ever developed.  Most high index lenses have what is called an aspheric design.  In addition to looking thinner, your lenses will also reduce the magnified “bug-eye” or “Coke-bottle” look often caused by thicker lenses.

 

Ask an optician here at Eye Appeal, LLC about which lens material will be best and most comfortable for you!
